The Naminara Republic Experience Part 3


Here we are at the final entry about Nami Island and my time there a few weeks ago. The last bits of our moments on the island were spent strolling through a ceramics museum and taking in the view of a nice park.

The Naminara Republic Experience: VIDEO

Part three will be coming, but in the meantime let's take a look at the video experience of visiting the island. I hope this entices you to go there and enjoy the sites.


The Naminara Republic Experience Part 1

I have always enjoyed road trips in Korea, because you often spot something in the distance that is odd or different. The above picture is an example of this and was found on my recent mini-road trip to Namiseo or Nami Island that I took with JH. For those not able to take a car trip I will provide public transportation information.

Nami Island is not some little place out over the Yellow or East Sea, for it is an island in the middle of a river, the North Han River. The following are several maps that will help you see why it is so special.

April School Field Trip


Art Event: "Before the Dawn of Language. There Was the Symbol"


I Got Out!

It's not that thrilling, but last Saturday I did manage to put down my work and head to Gangnam station. I met up with the good people of Artpoli to discuss how I can be involved more. So far they have been mostly use to Korean members and are trying to bring in non-Korean artists. It was awesome to talk about art and how I can help the group out. Already you can see I am posting information about their contests.

(Note: If you get to their site and it says "not available" it's because they're doing maintenance.")

Along the way, I managed to get in a few snapshots of the Gangnam subway station, which seems to be under a huge renovation.

Around Korea in 5 days- Day 1 Busan 부산 to Samcheok 삼척

I had done twelve day trips by motorcycle in Korea. As the end of the riding season approached I decided to do one last trip. This time I would try to go all the way around Korea. My goal was to do it in five days and for fewer than 400,000 won. I estimated it would be around 1,600 kms. I would budget 80,000 won for each day. I left Monday September 21th. I was headed up the east coast of South Korea. I was crashing on a friends couch during that time. I got up early that morning and headed out on the road. I made a wrong turn in Busan, making me head back into town. I got things straightened out and I hoped that this would not be indicative of the trip. Finally by 10:30am, Busan was fading away behind me.

Canada trip- Victoria, BC

Alright you can check out the video of my trip from Vancouver to Victoria in Canada. I spent over twelve years living in Victoria. On my time back there I realized how lucky I was to have spent the time that I did there. I still have so many good friends there. This video I decided to edit to a good friend’s music. I hope you enjoy. By the end of the day I have compiled 2-4 hours of footage on two cameras. I then cut that footage into the five minute video you see here. The video features music by James Kasper.

Canada trip- Winnipeg, Manitoba

Alright you can check out the video of my trip from Vancouver to Winnipeg in Canada. Winnipeg is the city I grew up in. When I went back I went to the Manitoba Museum, the forks, the BDI and a Winnipeg Blue Bombers game. By the end of the day I have compiled 2-4 hours of footage on two cameras. I then cut that footage into the five minute video you see here. The video features music by The Weakerthans. The song is titled “One great City”. I was in Winnipeg for my birthday and figured that being back in Canada I would finally have my name(Jeff) spelled right. Apparently I was wrong.

South Korea Trip- Changnyeong 창녕

Alright you can check out the video of my trip from Busan to Changnyeong in South Korea. The trip in total was 304 kms. I rode the #25 highway to Changnyeong and back. On the trip I checked out an 18th century Ice house, the Changnyeong Museum, Upo wetlands, the Bak Jin War Memorial and a mountain park. A super special thanks to Claudio Sepulveda for his advice and grading. The best colorist in Vancouver! By the end of the day I have compiled 2-4 hours of footage on two cameras.
